    Ex plods if its a V70 have Nivomat self levelers on rear, not too sure about S60, and cant use lowered springs with Nivomats, you would need to change rear shockers to standard shocks

    Yep - nivomats on the rear.

    You can just fit OE rear shocks, you don't need to change the mounts. As I found, fitting lowering springs with nivomats makes it look silly!
